Black Friday

This Friday (27th November) is Black Friday – when there are big discounts in most shops and online! It started out in the USA – it takes place the day after Thanksgiving – but is now common in most countries. It marks the start of the Christmas shopping season. Are you going to look for a bargain this Friday? Is there something you have got your eye on or do you think that Black Friday is a waste of time and money?


Discounts – descuentos


I’m waiting to see if I can get a good discount on a new TV on Black Friday.


 Christmas shopping – compras de navidad


Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?


 Bargain – una ganga


Do you like my new shoes? They were a bargain- just 30!


Have (got) your eye on – tener la intención de comprar algo que ya has visto


I’ve got my eye on a gorgeous silver watch.


A waste of time and money – una pérdida de tiempo y dinero


I queued for an hour to get a toy my son wanted and two days later it broke! What a waste of time and money!
